Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken is the second installment in The Darkest Minds trilogy. I was blown away by her 1st book and debut novel; The Darkest Minds, so I was extremely excited to jump into book two!
Never Fade was an even better book than The Darkest Minds, and let me tell you, The Darkest Minds set the bar really high! Bracken’s writing and story are incredible! She’s created such a fantastic world, and such relatable, beautiful characters. One of my favorite things about these books are the characters. All of the main characters are great and all possess qualities that are easy to love, and set them aside from each other. Some book characters I find are very similar to characters in other books, but I these novels every characters is so distinct and “real”.
The story itself is fantastic. There is never a dull moment in this book. Like The Darkest Minds, Never Fade is fast paced and a thrill ride! The characters are always on the move, which is great because it keeps the book flowing, and from becoming dull.
And like The Darkest Minds, I’m grasping for book three which is to be released soon!
It’s hard to fully describe how great the book was and can say with a full heart that I loved this book! For those who haven’t read book one, I highly recommend you go out and pick it up today! I promise you, you won’t be disappointed!
